大学生是否需要写毕业论文？Should College Students Need to Write A Thesis?
In most China Universities, the graduates are demanded to write a thesis of a certain length to get the degree. However, this long tradition has been challenged by people, saying that the universities students can not write a thesis independently. They just copy from others. This is a waste of time. So far as I am concerned, the graduates may still need to the thesis to finish their university studies.
First and foremost, writing the thesis is a very good practice for students. It's a good way for students to systemically summarize the knowledge of the four-year studies. Take the English major as an example, writing thesis can broaden the reading scope as well as improve writing skills. What's more, the task is a perfect show of the students' knowledge and progress over the four-year studies. By the thesis, teachers can judge whether a student has reached the level required for graduation. Finally, the writing of the thesis may contribute to the further development of academy. The questions discussed and tackled in the thesis may be helpful for the advance of a certain area.
From the reasons discussed above, it it quite necessary for graduates to write a graduating thesis, which is beneficial to students as well as academy.
